Coronary artery disease can be explained by thickening of walls of coronary artery due to deposit of fatty protein around the walls. This fatty protein narrow the passage for blood stream which interrupts in proper delivery oxygen and other nutrients which required for heart and this may lead to heart attack.
The protein forces the platelets in the blood to stick together and causes clotting thus greatly increasing the risks of heart disease and limited supply of blood to the brain, also increasing chances of stroke.
